I am in China and reaching github for cloning stuff is pretty much a gamble ... if you are lucky the connection holds long enough to get something
Can anybody of my fellow Chinese advice whether there are any tricks apart from using a VPN that help getting a more reliable access to github?
regarding OCA modules ... do you have any mirrors that are not github?
For the record, the DDOS that crippled github last week is believed to be linked the github hosting a mirror of greaftire.org, a software used to circumvent the chinese firewall.
